1. Individuals must be at least 13 years of age to participate in the pilgrimage. They must complete an application for registration. These are due to Area Leaders by the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, each year for the following year.
2. All applications must be signed and applicants attend a minimum of three mandatory meetings for the June pilgrimage. This is in addition to any local meetings held in your communities.
It takes one week to complete the Pilgrimage of 100 miles, walking about 20 miles each day. The groups sleep in parish halls or school gyms located on the way to Chimayo. Church organizations or families provide meals for the pilgrims. All pilgrims begin their walk on Monday morning and on Saturday the groups meet at El Santuario for a Mass celebrated by the Archbishop.
